Four questions every medical staff should ask before paying leaders

There is no magic formula to help hospitals determine which leaders to compensate and how much. One facility could compensate the medical staff president $50,000 per year but not compensate any other leaders. Another facility could compensate the medical staff president $30,000 per year and pay department and committee chairs with a $10,000-per-year stipend. Another hospital could choose to not compensate leaders at all. According to Callahan, all three compensation decisions would be acceptable as long as they are within the boundaries of regulatory issues, such as fair market value, Stark and Anti-kickback statutes.
